Makin' Movies!

Thanks COVID for messing up in-person book events!

** SIGH **

The only thing I do worse than yoga (really - I love it but am not flexible at all!) is technical stuff. But just like Rex in DINOS DON'T DO YOGA I've had to learn new things - such as how to use Zoom, a ring light, webcam, speakers, microphones, a flux capicator...

I will admit I have thrown a tantrum (or six) but 
I'm slowly getting the hang of this brave new e-world. 
And actually I am starting to like it. 
A little teensy bit.

About the Book: A fun-filled dinosaur story with timely themes about kindness, friendship, and being able to see past our differences.
Meet Rex, the talon-tearing tough leader of a Cretaceous crew that loves to feed, feud, and fight! All is well in their rough-and-tumble world until someone new comes to town: a yoga-loving dino named Sam. Rex disapproves of his yoga pants, the “silly” chants, and frankly anyone who prefers tree pose to tussling.
But how will Rex react when his surly, burly buddies want to try something new? And what is the real reason Rex rejects this new dinosaur?
Kids will delight in this chomping, stomping showdown between the muscle-bound and the mellow, as Rex learns what true toughness looks like. With humor and heart, Dinos Don’t Do Yoga reveals the strength of kindness and friendship over bullying and fear.
